Securities And Investment Fraud Attorneys In Chicago

Securities fraud takes on many forms. Investors incur losses when companies, corporate insiders, hedge funds, private placement issuers, financial advisors and other financial professionals make false or misleading statements or fail to disclose material information. Other times, they promise unrealistic high returns or perpetrate fraud through the misuse or misappropriation of investment funds.

The investment fraud attorneys at Lewitas Hyman have decades of experience dealing with securities fraud cases and have a deep understanding of how capital markets and financial service firms are intended to work to protect investors. They work tirelessly to protect the rights and financial interests of those who have been victims in all manner of fraud cases.
